About the Series

Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is one of the most difficult disorders to understand. In this series, Dr. Ramani debunks the disorder she describes as "the secondhand smoke of mental health." You'll walk away with tangible takeaways for identifying narcissism in plain sight, how to cope with narcissistic abuse, and whether NPD can be treated.

“Thank you for the insight! I am now free of a relationship with a narcissist! This has truly brought a lot of comfort and made me understand. It was very painful but the more I watch, the more I understand what was happening and why I lived with constant anxiety. I knew something was wrong but kept giving second chances thinking he was really in love with me. The truth is, he will always love himself first. It was hurtful to be deceived but I have a better grasp with these videos. Thanks again!”
